While browsing e-bay I found a portrait inscribed as Duchess of Luxembourg in 1889 by Charles de Laboulaye...The first Duchess Adelheid would be (maybe) too old for the sitter and the second one Maria Anna of Braganca would be 28 at the time but married the Duke of Luxembourg in 1893,4 years later than the portrait was painted...Any idea who could this be?




Whomever this is,not a duchess of Luxembourg and not in 1889 as King Willem III of the Netherlands was also GrandDuke of Luxembourg and Emma his Grandduchess,so,sorry for E-bay to have their captions wrong.And a de Laboulaye,Charles must be the lesser known of the three Laboulayes.

That's Princess Marie of Wied, mother of Queen Elisabeth of Romania.
